Re: How many language keyboard of the QL were made?

I have the Greek version from the above link, but it can write in English letters fine. Ok. What ROM version does it have (PRINT VER$)? Or do I remember seeing somewhere that the Greek version could somehow be switched - not sure. What does the initial F1/F2 screen look like? The only one I've ever...

Re: How many language keyboard of the QL were made?

As well as the British, German, French, Swedish, Finnish, Danish listed on that page, there was certainly also: USA (same k/b as UK I think, but some internal differences on account of the 50/60 hz mains power difference) Italian Spanish Norwegian Greek (just Greek letters) Some pics here: http://ww...

Re: TDI P-System

I'll email you the dumps now Daniele. All the cartridges have a few bad sectors. One sector in the first one is also completely missing from the dump... the sector header must be corrupted. Unfortunately, the partial reads of the bad sectors don't look empty, in the sense that they contain varied d...

Re: TDI P-System

Not sure about the p-system file format, but if you want to send me the dumps, I can at least take a look at the mdump sectors, perhaps it's possible to see if partially-read damaged sectors look empty or not. With mdump, you can also alternate the src drive to maximize the probability of success. ...

Re: TDI P-System

I have sent you a PM. I have a set of the manuals for the Fortran and Pascal (I think) there are a lot of manuals needed for this software. Most of my cartridges have corruption too unfortunately. It'll all go stratospherically over my head, but I suppose it may enable me to read the contents of th...

Re: Keyboard Interface problem

Well, you could remove the QL keyboard handling from the Minerva ROM to free space ;) Or I've got one TK2 version on my site that lacks the ED editor and is small enough, too. Or removing the network driver could free up enough space... so stuff is possible, but it's all a bit of work ;) Deary me, ...

Understood. I'll put it at C000 then, instead of TK2.

Re: Keyboard Interface problem

I've been talking to Maskenlos over pm and this question arose that also interests me:

Is it possible to program an EPROM with Minerva, TK2 (from $C000) and also include the ROMable version of the ABC keyboard code somewhere on the same chip?

The ABC ROM code is 786 bytes long.
